Dr. Scott Welsh is a Board Certified and Fellowship Trained Orthopedic Surgeon focusing in minimally invasive techniques for the treatment of knee injuries such as meniscus tears, ACL tears, MCL tears, and cartilage damage. He treats arthritis of the knee using a variety of methods including cortisone injections, hyaluronic acid (gel) injections and other innovative techniques. When conservative treatments have been exhausted, Dr. Welsh may suggest performing total joint replacement surgery to maximize patient outcomes.
Furthermore, he specializes in the treatment of shoulder problems such as rotator cuff tears, biceps tendon injuries, SLAP tears, labral tears, impingement syndrome, AC joint separations, and distal clavicle osteolysis. While specializing in arthroscopic surgery, Dr. Welsh also performs fracture repair of the shoulder, elbow, wrist, and ankle. He routinely evaluates and treats patients with other injuries such as ankle sprains, elbow injuries, and wrist injuries to determine options for their best course of care. Dr. Welsh uses innovative therapy and techniques to help treat meniscus tears, rotator cuff tears, tendon degeneration (tendinosis), tendon tears, tennis and golfer’s elbow, ligament tears and articular cartilage injuries.
Dr. Welsh believes in treating the whole person by utilizing conservative treatments when possible in hopes of allowing the body to repair itself. It is his priority to educate patients about all of options, in order to help them make an informed decision about their treatment plan.
